House Judiciary Committee writes to Vice President« Thread Started on Jun 7, 2007, 5:14pm » --------------------------------------------------------------------------------House Democrats tell Cheney to butt out of Scooter Libby pardon proceedings Michael RostonPublished: Thursday June 7, 2007 read at source> ... 07.htmlTwo leading Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee wrote to Vice President Dick Cheney today and urged him to recuse himself from any internal proceedings on granting former top White House aide I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby a pardon. On Tuesday, Libby was sentenced to 30 months in prison for perjury, obstruction of justice, and making false statement charges."In light of your personal involvement in the facts that gave rise to the charges against Mr. Libby, and your apparent stake in a favorable outcome for him, we strongly urge that you recuse any future issues that relate to his prosecution," wrote Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) in the Thursday letter. They continued, "It would be deeply divisive, and invite deep cynicism and disrespect for the legal process, were the American people to conclude that Mr. Libby undertook actions that subjected him to criminal liability to protect you, knowing...that you would thereafter take steps to protect him from the consequences of his criminal conduct."
